In my book, Kathryn Bigelow is a great director. I like almost all of her films including horror road movie "Near Dark", cool thriller "Blue Steel", action filled "Point Break" and SF master-peace "Strange Days".
Unfortinatly for the last ten years or so, her career is slowing down. I hope that her new film will be return to form - and until then we have "Mission Zero"
"Mission Zero" is a neat action packed short movie, starring the one and only Uma Thurman. The story is simple, but kind of cool: a sexy woman (Thurman) is chased around the city in her yellow Lamborghiniby. The killers are everywhere.
Bigelow delivers good action peace - it is short and kind of pointless, but it's fun times. The fans of Uma and "Kill Bill" will be delighted to see her as an action heroine once more.
